Call of the Forsaken Info & Guides: Overview | Progression & Task List | Raiding | Visible Armor

About Heroic Adventures

- Heroic adventures in Call of the Forsaken scale in level: As low as Level 75 and up to current maximum level.
- Scale is based on the highest level player present in the zone and affects difficulty, loot quality, and mob levels.
- There is some variation/randomization in the task steps you'll be assigned as you progress through the task.
- Time of completion will vary by your group's makeup (anywhere from 30-90+ minutes).
- Collection items appear as ground spawns midway through tasks (you'll see an emote indicating their appearance).
- Named mobs (or their PHs) spawn midway through tasks (usually, but always, at the same time collection items appear).
- These tasks have individual 3-hour lockout timers (timer gained upon completion).

Experience in Heroic Adventures

- Mobs in these instances grant some experience, but the bulk of experience is earned upon task completion.
- As of a patch in November 2014, less difficult tasks were tuned to reward less experience and more difficult ones were tuned to reward more.
- For an added experience bonus, check out Guard Hamarn's "Daily Tasks".



This is a heroic adventure (1-6 players) that begins with Naturalist Yrelia in the Bixie Warfront. She is located at about -790, -2120, 50 (up the ramp just east of the portal to the Ethernere Tainted West Karana).

Pre-Requisites for Requesting:
- Level 75
- No tasks

    TASK IN DETAIL

    ========================================================================
    TRIGGERING THE TASK
    ========================================================================

    You say, 'Hail, Naturalist Yrelia'

    Naturalist Yrelia's antennae twitch as she stares up through the rocky tunnel. A breeze from above carries the faint scent of [mildew and blood].

    You say, 'Mildew and blood?'

    Naturalist Yrelia says 'There is war both above and below, _____. The [wild beasts] grow restless under the [oppressive influence] of the bixies.'

    You say, 'Wild beasts?'

    Naturalist Yrelia says 'Beetles, snakes, moles, and others giving into their most violent tendencies. But the biggest threat are the [spiders].'

    You say, 'Oppressive influence?'

    Naturalist Yrelia says 'The Stone Hive Bixies may not have been friendly to outsiders invading their land...' Naturalist Yrelia gives you a knowing look before continuing, "But they used to care for nature. Nurture it. Now they [aggravate and abuse] it.'

    You say, 'What about the spiders?'

    Naturalist Yrelia says 'Wise, strong, and numerous is how you want to describe your allies, _____, not your enemies. The spiders have a [large nest] near here, and I'm less certain with every passing minute that we can abide its presence.'

    You say, 'How do they aggravate and abuse their nature?'

    Naturalist Yrelia says 'You've seen how they're acting recently. This isn't the Stone Hive bixies we've worked alongside for generations. These are monsters. Monsters with no aim but self-[destruction] and [foolish pride]'.

    You say, 'What large nest?'

    Naturalist Yrelia says 'I've never seen spiders breed so quickly. I've only explored the first few caves I came across inside of the [massive underground complex], but in just those few rooms, I saw [hundreds of eggs] and hatchers tending to them.'

    You say, 'What about this self-destruction?'

    Naturalist Yrelia looks at you with sadness and desperation in her eyes, "Surely you've heard what their final plan is, right? To conquer Crescent Reach and slay the mighty dragons. Bixie hives are not typically known for their arrogance or stupidity. Will you [help] us stop them before they get themselves killed?

    You say, 'And foolish pride?'

    Naturalist Yrelia says 'Our allies in the Stone Hive have a long history of flourishing alongside nature, encouraging its growth for a shared protection. Now, they plunder it for trophies and [bragging rights].'

    You say, 'Tell me abou this massive underground complex'

    Naturalist Yrelia says 'It's better if you see it for yourself. Are you rested up and ready to [embark on an adventure]?'

    You say, 'And the hundreds of eggs?'

    Naturalist Yrelia says 'Trust me, we do not want them to hatch, if they haven't already. How are you feeling? Are you ready to [embark on an adventure]?'

    You say, 'Bragging rights?'

    Naturalist Yrelia says 'Hunting the massive spiders in the nearby nest has become a local sport. Returning with the corpse of a giant spider over your shoulder has become the highest sign of military prowess. Many return victorious every day, but even more are dying on the hunt and being left behind by their fellow hunters. There is no honor in a wasted death, and I fear the spiders' retaliation will be too much for the nearby bixie homesteads to bear. True strength comes from working alongside nature, not against it, _____. Will you [help]?'

    You say, 'I will help'

    Naturalist Yrelia says 'The time for talking is done. Action is needed now. Will you [embark on an adventure] on behalf of us and our allies?'

    You say, 'Let's embark on an adventure...'

    Naturalist Yrelia says 'Excellent. There's an urgent matter that suits you perfectly. Let me know when you're [ready] to confront it.'

    You have been assigned the task 'The Great Hunt'.

    A group of paticularly bloodthirsty bixies have broken off from the hive to hunt deadly spiders that have nested nearby. Find these hunters and ensure that their crusade is successful, so that they don't accidentally trigger a backlash from the spider nest that'd surely wipe out the hive.

    You say, 'Ready!'

    Naturalist Yrelia says 'May cool winds carry you and soft ground catch you. Fight well, _____.'

    LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
    You have entered Bixie Warfront.

    ========================================================================
    STEP #1
    ========================================================================

  • Kill encroaching spiders near the hunting camp 0/4 (Bixie Warfront)

    Task Window Says: You discovered a camp of savage bixies that have broken off from the hive and seem to be hunting spiders on the outskirts of the area. Prove your worth by slaying some spiders in front of them.

    If You Get This Step: These mobs are located at the zone-in. They can have a lot of hitpoints and some of them AE rampage (hit for a max ~11,000).

    ========================================================================
    STEP #2
    ========================================================================

  • Speak with Gralice at the hunters' camp 0/1 (Bixie Warfront)

    Task Window Says: The spider hunters' camp appears to be ruled by Gralice, a particularly harsh-looking bixie hunter. Speak with her and find out what you can about their activities.

    If You Get This Step: Follow through Gralice's dialogue, updating the step with "final advance".

    You say, 'Hail, Gralice'

    Gralice twitches towards you and grunts. She laughs cruelly and says, 'Pathetic! I could see the [fear] in your eyes.'

    You say, 'Fear?'

    Gralice says 'There's no point in denying it, _____ You fear me, and you should. I am terrifying. I alone have [hunted] in these caves for weeks, and lived to [reign] over this camp.'

    You say, 'Hunted?'

    Gralice says 'We bixies have not always been respected for our military prowess. The world saw us as gardeners, nature-lovers, and honey collectors. Down here, in the new hive, we [prove them wrong].'

    You say, 'You reign?'

    Gralice roars at the top of her voice and nearby spider [hunters] cautiously shift away from her cautiously as she shouts, 'I am the queen of this camp. Do any dare defy me or my claim?'

    You say, 'Prove them wrong?'

    Gralice says 'Have you not seen the might of the bixie military yet, fool? Then I pity you, and welcome the _____ subjugation. The military is strong, but we, the spider [hunters], we are stronger.'

    You say, 'What hunters?'

    Gralice says 'There is no greater predator in this region than the vicious and powerful spiders. We hunters, the strongest bixies in the entire hive, have fought our way into this area, pouring out our blood for every inch of territory gained as we [push the spiders back].'

    You say, 'Push the spiders back?'

    Gralice raises her weapon into the air ahd shouts, 'We have pushed them all the way to their nest! The spiders lurk within, waiting for our [final advance]. And we will not disappoint!' The rest of the hunters cheer.

    You say, 'Your final advance?'

    Gralice gives you a wicked smile as she grabs your arm and says very sternly, 'You will be our forward scouts in this mission. Run into the nest, and fight your way to the top. We'll watch from here to see where they wait in ambush for us.'

    =====================

  • Speak with Charlbroiled Chanon at the hunters' camp 0/1 (Bixie Warfront)

    Task Window Says: At the center of the spider hunters' camp is a jovial barbecue chef, Charlbroiled Chanon. The other hungers seem to respect her greatly. Speak with her and find out what you can about their activities.

    If You Get This Step: This is a dialogue update; follow through the dialogues with Charlbroiled Chanon.

    ========================================================================
    STEP #3
    ========================================================================

  • Draw out and kill lurking spiders 0/8 (Bixie Warfront)

    Task Window Says: The hunters at the camp didn't seem to take you seriously, telling you to go to the nearby spider nest and simply wait for spiders to find you. You have the sneaking suspicion that they're right about the spiders finding you. Delve into the spider nest cautiously, and wait for lurking spiders to find you in the first tunnel.

    If You Get This Step: As the task says, head into the east tunnel. In there, you'll see small piles of brown rocks on the ground. These signal the spawn locations of your kill targets. Run over a pile of rocks to spawn "a lurker", which attacks. Kill eight of these for the update. These mobs hit for a max ~13,000, AE rampage, and are stunnable/mezzable.

    =====================

  • Squish egg sacs 0/12 (Bixie Warfront)

    Task Window Says: The hunters claimed to have killed most of the mature spiders in the caves in their most recent raids. Some reported that they suspect a new batch of spiders will hatch soon. They prefer to wait until the spiders are dangerous enough to kill some of their hunting party before starting a new raid. Smash the spiderlings in the egg sacs before they grow.

    If You Get This Step: Destroy the egg sacs (note: spawns spiderling adds).

    Location of "Egg Room": -142, -1968, -35.51


    ========================================================================
    STEP #4
    ========================================================================

  • Free spider hunters 0/6 (Bixie Warfront)

    Task Window Says: There are more mature spiders in this nest than hunters led you to believe. The nastiest of the bunch, the web spinners, seem to be capturing bixie hunters and preserving them for eating later. Find the web spinners, kill them, and free any captured bixie hunters that are still alive. Some of the cocoons have already been feasted on and you'll find nothing but corpses inside. Instead, look for wiggling cocoons which are much more likely to contain someone that can still be saved.

    If You Get This Step: Head out of the spider tunnel and into the central nest area. On the bridges, around the caves, and inside the caves, you'll find cocoons called "a wiggling cocoon". To make these killable, you have to kill the "a web spinner" near it. With the web spinner dead, you can free the hunter trapped in the cocoon (these tend to have other spiders near them as well, but they aren't technically necessary to kill).

    =====================

  • Collect colorful venom 0/10 (Bixie Warfront)

    Task Window Says: There are more mature spiders in this nest than the hunters led you to believe. The poisonous ones seem to be particularly nasty. Take out the packs of poisonous spiders and collect samples of their poison to develop an antidote with later.

    If You Get This Step: This item drops from "a poisonous spider" (found in groups of 3-6; the large ones carry 1-2 bottles venom on them).

    =====================

  • Burn Undying Spiders and Resistant Egg Sacks (0/10)

    Task Window Says: ?

    If You Get This Step: With the "Bixie Fire Blower" you received in your inventory, DPS undying spiders and resilient egg sacs past 20% health, and then click the item to finish them off. Note that the egg sacs, while being DPS'd, spawn weak spiderling adds.

    ========================================================================
    STEP #5
    ========================================================================

  • Find an exit to the surface 0/1 (Bixie Warfront)

    Task Window Says: You can see natural light coming from the top of this spider nest. Fight your way to the top and find a path that leads out to the surface.

    If You Get This Step: Note that a named has a chance to spawn inside the zone at this point in the task. Make your way up to the top of the spider ramps and down the tunnel that leads to the surface.

    ========================================================================
    STEP #6
    ========================================================================

  • Save Flace Woon from creaky treants 0/10 (Bixie Warfront)

    Task Window Says: Flace Woon was incredibly relieved to find you in the forest clearing. He told you he's being attacked by angry treants. Help him kill the treants. Treants will freeze and stop attacking if you get close to them and look directly at them.

    If You Get This Step: Speak with Flace Woon to trigger this mini event. Once triggered, the creaky treants surrounding the area move in and begin attacking Flace Woon. Don't worry about keeping her alive as she locks health at 10%. The treants each hit for a max ~12,500; are stunnable/mezzable; have a lot of hitpoints; and are social with each other (so if you aggro one, you aggro any nearby as well). They will initially focus their attention on Flace Woon, but you can draw their aggro from her. You can stop a treant from moving and from attacking by looking at it directly, face-to-face (you'll see an emote indicating it's become "frozen in place". As long as you keep looking at it, it will not attack back.

    You say, 'Hail, Flace Woon'

    Flace Woon doesn't look at you while she speaks to you, 'Thank the gods you came, _____. The treants here have been picking off our scouts one by one. I tried to help them, but they've cornered me here. We need to [kill them] once and for all.

    You say, 'How do we Kill them?'

    Flace Woon says 'The treants won't move while you're looking at them! Try to keep vision on as many as possible while you fight them. Are you [ready]?'

    You say, 'Ready!'

    Flace Woon says 'Here they come!'

    a creaky treant has been slain by _____!

    Flace Woon looks sad as she picks up a fallen leaf and tucks it into her pocket.

    This completes the task.

    =====================

  • Kill Mosscreeper 0/1 (Bixie Warfront)

    Task Window Says: You encountered Gralice, a stern spider hunger, as you were climbing out of the nest. She is eager for bloodshed, no matter who it is. Treant have taken over the courtyard in front of you and Gralice is itching for a fight. Try to keep her alive as she hunts the smaller treants. If you kill enough, Mosscreeper will no doubt arrive to defend his minions.

    If You Get This Step: Clear the nine smaller treants to spawn Mosscreeper, which spawns with three additional treants. Mosscreeper, itself, has ~8 million hitpoints; hits for a max ~13,000; and casts "Hold the Tree Line" and "Creeping Moss":

    Hold the Tree Line: Self 0', Unresistable (0)
    1: Block Melee or Spells (50), Max: 0
    2: Root

    Creeping Moss: Single Target, Disease (0)
    1: Illusion: New Treant
    2: Root
    3: Decrease Hitpoints by 4000 per tick (3 ticks)
    4: Increase AC by 1500

    Keep Gralice alive or the task ends.

    =====================

  • Hunt wild beasts with Charlbroiled Chanon 0/15 (Bixie Warfront)

    Task Window Says: You encountered a bixie spider hunter by the name of Charbroiled Chanon as you were climbing out of the nest. She seems obsessed with cooking everything she kills, and is eager to eat something beside spider meat. Help her hunt wild animals in the small forest clearing above the spiders nest. She'll be able to salvage top -quality inredients from anything you kill, but if you bring injured animals close to her, she'll eagerly help you finish them off.

    If You Get This Step: DPS mobs to 10% at which point Charlbroiled Chanon kills them.

    Charbroiled Chanon spawns on the group immediately after completing the previous step, and will follow one group member around (like a pet).

    If you hail her:

    Umbraeques says, 'Hail, Charbroiled Chanon'

    Charbroiled Chanon says, 'Oh, I just love hunting! You bring the beasties close to me when they're weak, and I'll kill them to ensure the tastiest parts are preserved.

    Any mob that's gets to 10% health near her will be killed instantly.

    When she kills a mob you see this:

    Charlbroiled Chanon says, 'I'll take it from here, team!'

    Looks like that if Gralice dies againt Mosscreeper, the task ends there and will not continue.
    So pay attention after killing the 9 little treants, Gralice will then move forward to Mosscreeper, and you'd better be ready.

    Squish egg sacs 0/12 (Bixie Warfront)

    Task Window Says: The hunters claimed to have killed most of the mature spiders in the caves in their most recent raids. Some reported that they suspect a new batch of spiders will hatch soon. They prefer to wait until the spiders are dangerous enough to kill some of their hunting party before starting a new raid. Smash the spiderlings in the egg sacs before they grow.

    If You Get This Step: Destroy the egg sacs (note: spawns spiderling adds).

    Location of "Egg Room": -142, -1968, -35.51

    With Lesson of the Devoted running and during an "XP Bonus Week", 105 toon got 44 AA's. The XP bonus wasn't specified but rumor has it that it's a +50% bonus. Assuming LotD doubles the 150% "regular" XP, that means this mission normally gives 15 AA's at 105.

    Found 4 collectibles, which was nice since the collections achievement related to these Bixie HA's is hard to complete. You do have to spend some time searching for the collectibles since the zone is full of nooks and crannies.

    Charlbroiled Chanon is found at the zone-in, literally where evac would dump you. The mob follows you, so you can move to more fertile hunting areas since the zone-in, by the time you get to this step, is pretty empty of prey. I didn't find you had to let Chanon get the final kill shot. We got the update for every mob we fought regardless---just about. I think the key is for Chanon to be within range of the fight. I did keep the pace down so that at least there was a couple of moments when the mob dropped under 20% before it died. I think if you burn a mob and it dies real quick, you might miss the tick when the task updates itself and lose credit for a kill. We had that happen at least a couple of times before we slowed down the pace.

    Burn Undying Spiders and Resistant Egg Sacks (0/10)

    Task Window Says: ?

    If You Get This Step: With the "Bixie Fire Blower" you received in your inventory, DPS undying spiders and resilient egg sacs to 10%, and then click the item to finish them off. Note that the egg sacs, while being DPS'd, spawn weak spiderling adds.


    Well...this is not wrong, but no need to wait until 10%. The task says "Weaken them, then use the Bixie Fire Blower to finish the job." At least 20% is good enough, though if you're not careful, you'll cast too early and have to wait 7 seconds to recharge.

    Did this with 85 War/Enc and healer/rogue mercs. My first HA actually. Some notes:

    Lots of 2-3 pulls, though they're all blues. Having crowd control is a big plus (as it has been in all subsequent HAs I've done). Lev also helps since you've got to climb high up into the spider caves.

    Got the Mosscreeper step. I think he might have conned even or dark blue. He does have a lot of HPs and came with 3 adds. Chanter locked down adds while War + merc wailed on Mossy. Took a while to kill but the healbot didn't have much trouble keeping up. Mossy turned the mercs into huge treants, though never landed it on PCs.

    Know what happens to a gnome when their giant treant illusion wears off? Well let me tell you - giant effing gnome.

    Arachnox, the Dread Widow did pop. She was yellow to my 85 war. Has a TON of hps and a long fight, but was fully slowable which made it trivial. She dropped the spidersilk mask and latent ether legs, which I thought was odd. I didn't expect lvl 100 gear to drop in a lvl 85 tuned HA. Oh well, 15 more levels to go.
    Creaky treats

    In the last event where you need to kill the 10 creaky treants, as mentioned above, Flace Woon won't die, so let the treants converge on her. Back up a long way along a path, and just target one treant to draw aggro through DOTs. If that treat brings friends, no worry, because if you're far away enough, they converge into a single line. Have someone stand immediately in front of them and freeze them. Everyone else can swoop in and kill them. Freezing the treants is somewhat tricky, as they have to be exactly in front of you, centered on your screen. You might have to fiddle with your orientation to get it exact, but they move very slowly and if you leave yourself enough space, it shouldn't be a problem.

    For step 4: There are some venomous spiders in groups of 3-6. The large ones have 1-2 bottles venom on them for the task.

    I requested with 2 level 100 toons. During the mission, added a level 93. When we finished, the level 93 was dead and didn't get a reward. When he petition'd, he was told he was too low to get a reward...

    After we burned all the undying spiders, we got an emote about noticing shiney things. Two collectibles had spawned at the bottom of the pit.

    when you finish the spiders and find your way out, Gralice (Slayer of Spiders) appears ... was anchored to one of our group members like a pet. Helped with the treants. Did pretty decent dps, too.

    Mosscreeper spawned after all 9 of the treants were dead. The treants don't have a lot of hp (on the order of 1.4m hp). Compared to the 4.5m hp for the spiders (at least he undying ones).

    Mosscreeper spawned with 3 treants with him. He had nearly 8m hp. Frequently cast (w/ emote) a spell that turned us into trees. He and the treants all con'd dark blue to 100. (group was 2x 100 and a lvl 93 - the level 93 was added after the mission was started).

    He used Creeping Moss and Hold the Tree Line a lot!

    In a fight lasting 1028 seconds, he cast Creeping Moss 54 times and Hold the Tree Line 41 times.

    Max hit on 100 paladin was 12604.

    Screenshot
    Gralice spawns after you kill all the spiders (probably when you "find the way out"). Follows a group member like a pet. Helps w/ treants. When Mosscreeper spawns, she runs off to fight it.

    I worked on this but ran out of time IRL. The normal mobs have a zillion hp. The premature spiderlings that spawn from the egg sacks as you kill them don't have very many, nor do they hit very hard. I found the tunnel out (popped out staring at some treants) and got a task update on the way up but I wasn't up to that step, yet.

    When you get to the squash the egg sacks step, the first tunnel has 2 egg sacks in it .. keep following it and there is another one right outside the tunnel on the ledge, then go immediately right and up to another egg sack which is at the entrance to a chamber with lots of other egg sacks (the overall total is somewhere towards 15-18 so no problem getting the 12 needed).

    The hunter cocoons (wriggling cocoons) do not spawn adds nor do they have very many hp.

    That's as far as i got before I had to log.

    2-box shm/pal with healer/wiz mercs (lvl 100). Mercs with no gear or aas.

    I did not have this problem, must be something on your end or server side.
    spawns a low hp add at 80, 50 and around 20ish I think, Then the egg sacks die.

    mobs in these do have a ungodly amount of hit points though.

    The egg sacks mentioned in step 3 appear to be "unkillable" at this time; their health bar locks at 10%, no matter what is done to it.

    Actually not a bug
    There are 2 types of egg sacks for 2 different steps.

    Avoid the Resistant Egg Sacks if you have the Squish Egg Sacks step also avoid Undying spiders as they don't die also. Both are for the following alternate Step 4 task

    Step 4
    Burn Undying Spiders and Resistant Egg Sacks (0/10)
    You get a Bixie Fire Blower in Inventory
    Strat- Damage Resistant Egg Sacks or Undying Spiders to at least 20% health then click the Bixie Fire Blower to finish them

    Note 1 both never go below 10% without the clicky

    Note 2 the egg Sacks also spawn some weak spider adds
